Local respite unit raise funds for Macmillan Cancer Support

PATIENTS and staff from a Wirral learning disability respite unit recently raised over £250 at a 'summer lights' fundraising event for Macmillan Cancer Support. Staff from Thorn Heys Respite Unit, the base for Cheshire and Wirral Partnership NHS Foundation Trust's (CWP) Wirral Learning Disability Services, held the fundraising event supported by patients, carers, family members and colleagues from Ashton House Learning Disability Community Team.  On the day, attendees took part in a variety of activities including a raffle, a 'guess the jelly beans jar' contest and a separate play area was provided for the children. Summer Lights is a national fundraiser by Macmillan that asks supporters to invite the people who light up their life to a 'Summer Lights' gathering in the afternoon or evening, either indoors or in the garden, in exchange for a donation to Macmillan.  Jean Brennan, Unit Manager at Thorn Heys Respite Unit, said:- "It was a fantastic event and we managed to raise a massive £291. As the unit manager I am really proud of the team and all of the hard work they put into this event." CWP provides mental health and learning disability services to the people of Wirral.
